Located in the deep south of Sulawesi the Wakatobi Dive Resort has made many transformations since it’s early days as a simplistic beach resort. Now an award winning eco resort which boasts fine accommodation, spa services and gourmet dinning this is a destination that should appeal both to divers seeking to step off the beaten path whilst enjoying a twist of luxury en route. The reef diving in this secluded corner of Indonesia is by all accounts top notch, expect kilometer upon kilometer of genuinely pristine reef wall set in cobalt blue waters. Invertebrates are generally more common place than pelagics, Wakatobi is not a destination for anyone wishing for sharks and mantas but surely makes up for that in terms of diversity of species and the untouched and remote nature of the topside and underwater terrain. There are a number of different accommodation options all of which are classically designed and constructed of earthy materials such as wood and sandstone, each has a spacious verandas with large comfy sofas for lounging between dives. Access to Wakatobi is via Bali from which you’ll catch a private chartered flight to the island making for an ideal combination trip between the two locations.
